SUMMARY. A formula for the parameter-effects array corresponding to a transformed set of parameters is given which corrects a result of Bates and Watts(1981). Using this formula we calculate the parameter-effects curvature for parameter subsets and prove that the Ross transformation can be considerably simplified in many cases.
